Cramps and how to kick them?

If my cramps ever get really bad, I usually pop 2 advils then lie die with a heating pad on my belly. They usually go away within 1/2 an hour. Happy

I usually just bear the pain and try and comfort myself with a blanket, sweatpants, heating pad and maybe a little bit of chocolate.

Mmmm...chocolate!! I think I am actually semi addicted to chocolate because I eat it all the time. I think I really need to get on birth control though, because sometimes my cramps are so bad I'll start crying. And my friends that got on birth control say they never get cramps.

I had to go on it just for that reason. My cramps got so bad sometimes that i couldn't even get out of bed for two days.

CODINE. Its the only thing that kicks mine.. its the stuff in femax but you can buy own brand tablets thats usually paracetamol and codine for alot cheaper.
Hot water bottles also help me and I hate to say it but moving around also helps!
